In a Dental Emergency, You Need a Dentist, Not a Hospital

dca-blog_dental-emergencies-first-aid-kit

Across America, people with severe dental pain are showing up in hospital emergency rooms. The troubling trend is probably fueled by the fact that only one out of three Americans has dental insurance. Some areas report emergency room visits related to dental pain make up 37 percent of all uninsured visits. Many of those who are avoiding regular dental care for financial reasons wait until pain becomes unbearable and then seek emergency dental treatment. Unfortunately, emergency rooms only provide care to stabilize the patient or relieve pain until he or she can obtain true dental treatment.

Hospitals are being inundated with dental patients and typically treat them with antibiotics and pain medications, but do not provide emergency dental care that could save an affected tooth. Emergency rooms are designed to save lives, not teeth. The increase in hospital visits for emergency dental care is primarily associated with people between the ages of 20 and 39. Although these patients are opting out of dental care to save money, emergency room treatment for an abscess can cost thousands of dollars, and the underlying cause of the condition is never addressed. In contrast, an emergency dentist could treat both the immediate symptoms and the underlying dental condition.

Neglecting to obtain dental care can have devastating effects over time on both oral and general health. People who insist on avoiding going to the dentist need to pay close attention to their oral hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing can help remove bacteria that could later cause serious infections, gum disease, and tooth loss. Even with the best home care, a dental emergency can arise. Dentists are the only professionals equipped to properly diagnose and treat tooth and gum conditions. Routine dental visits can stop a dental emergency before it happens.
